The Mesmerist

197 user reviews 4

Is there a better gin bar in Brighton than one modelled on the gin palaces of the 1920s? The Mesmerist is an unconventional bar brought to life by its eccentric décor. Their back bar is stocked full of different and delicious gins, but they are most famous for their cocktails, so treat your taste buds to a Ginger Beer, made of Tanqueray gin, root ginger, lemon, gingerbread syrup, Laines Beers and a gingernut biscuit on the side.

Grand Central

10 user reviews 5

Only a stone's throw from Brighton train station is Grand Central, a charming bar with a delightful roof terrace when the sun comes out. But there's more than one string to the venue's bow: not only does it host the Nightingale Theatre, but also The Nightingale Room, a dedicated gin bar. 

Old Albion

36 user reviews 4

A former Victorian pub has been transformed into a gin palace in Hove. Join the Old Albion for delicious gin and tonics, using little-known gin brands such as Jensen's Bermondsey Gin and Silent Pool, along with their very own brand, Old Hove Gin.

The Stoneham

110 user reviews 4

An unmissable gastropub located on Portland Road, The Stoneham is a must-see if you're in Hove. Venture to their flower-filled garden or chill inside where open log fires will keep you cosy and classic pub grub will fill you up.

You can kind of guess that The Gin Tub is going to be on a list of the best gin bars in Brighton, but it doesn't get by on name alone. On top of their huge selection of gin and quirky decorations is a commitment to delicious cocktails, crafted carefully by bartenders with years of experience. They also lined the walls so people can't get phone signal inside the venue, which means you should bring that one friend who chooses to go on Facebook instead of talking to you.    

The Black Dove

4 user reviews 4

The Black Dove is a curious emporium of old-school wares and exemplifies its quirkiness with creative drinks. The Victorian inspired den has a decent selection of gins on their shelf, but their piece de resistance is the 'Cocktail Bible', a list of mixed drinks prepared by their master bartenders, including plenty of gin-based concoctions.     

Join the HarBAR for one of the most fun gin bars in Brighton. Sat along the seafront, you'll be greeted by a stylish interior before you tuck into one of their many refreshing gins. Along with great music and a buzzing atmosphere, they have a list of changing and innovative cocktails, if you fancy something other than a G&T.
